The nose of this wine is full of earth, dried rose petals, and ash with hints of plum and leather. On the palate this wine seems more related to Nebbiolo than to anything else, it has the classic tannic structure not harsh but a little gritty. The flavors are sweeter on the palate more rose and plum up front then slowly the earth and spicy notes emerge. The finish is dry, the wine has breadth and depth and a long lasting finish. This wine would be perfect for braised meats or wild mushroom risotto.
Drink from 2017 to 2026

I've had a number of Ciro Rossos over the years but this one was quite a revelation to me. While the others have generally displayed darker fruit, earthy aromas and rustic tannins the Arcuri is more akin to a lighter Nebbiolo. The aromas are those of red berries, minerals, sandalwood and dried herbs while the flavors express slightly salty red fruit, mild tannins and grippy acidity. It could almost be mistaken for a Piemonte red except for the exotic spicing and rustic character. We're happy to offer this outstanding addition to our Southern Italian selections,

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
